Craniosacral Therapy Certificate | Bastyr University


Craniosacral Therapy Certificate


Craniosacral therapy is an ever-evolving field that is used worldwide. The craniosacral non-credit courses include three levels of training, as well as a certificate program for those who wish to take the next step to polish their skill set.

Craniosacral therapy addresses the body, the head and the nervous system from the point of view developed by early osteopaths. Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle therapy which can benefit people from infancy through the end of life. It is an excellent treatment for musculoskeletal issues to gently release restrictions in movement to restore normal motion to the bones, joints and soft tissue. It is also an effective modality for treating chronic pain, such as migraine headaches and fibromyalgia, as well as addressing the emotional response to trauma which is held in the body.

Program classes are held on weekends. The optional certificate program can be completed in one year or spread over two years. The classes and certificate program are open to licensed healthcare practitioners who are licensed to touch, and students in those fields. Each course is 21 hours in length.
